Description

    TECHNICAL FIELD
  • The present invention relates generally to a mobile advertising system, and more particularly, to a method and apparatus for providing a mobile advertising service in a mobile advertising system.
  • BACKGROUND ART
  • The mobile communicant market continues to require creation of new services through recombination or integration of the existing technologies. Current development of communication and broadcast technologies has allowed conventional broadcasting systems and mobile communication systems to provide advertising services through portable terminals (or mobile terminals), such as mobile phones and Personal Digital Assistants (PDAs).
  • Due to latent and actual market needs and increasing user demands for multimedia services, service providers' intended strategies for providing new services such as advertising services in addition to the existing voice service and data service, and the identified interests of Information Technology (IT) companies which are bolstering their mobile communication businesses to meet the user's demands, convergence of mobile communication service and Internet Protocol (IP) has become a priority in the development of next generation mobile communication technologies.
  • Open Mobile Alliance (OMA), a group for studying the standard for interoperability between individual mobile solutions, serves to define various application standards for mobile games, Internet services and the like. Of the OMA Working Groups, Open Mobile Alliance Requirement (OMA REQ) Working Group and Open Mobile Alliance Content Delivery (OMA CD) Working Group are researching on the technology standard for offering Mobile Advertising (MobAd) service.
  • The mobile terminal transmits its preference to an advertising server via an advertising engine when subscribing to an advertising service or requesting an advertisement, so that a personalized advertisement may be provided through a mobile advertising system based on the mobile advertising service technology. Then the advertising server selects an advertisement satisfying the user's preference information from the advertisements received from an advertiser and delivers it to the advertising engine, thereby providing a personalized advertising service to the user. In the conventional mobile advertising service, since the preference that the user provides to receive a personalized advertisement is personal information specific to a particular user, it is strictly limited for other users to use this information. For example, even though a particular user desires to deliver the requested personalized advertisement to group members or other users, like when one of IPod (a mobile multimedia player designed and launched by Apple) club members intends to allow other members to receive the advertisement he has received, the respective group members cannot use the preference information of the particular user and should provide the preference including the same information to the advertising server independently. Then the advertising server delivers advertisements to the users referring to the received preference information of the respective users. Therefore, there is a need for a preference sharing method in which an advertising server can provide the same personalized advertising service as that of a particular user to group members or other users based on the preference set by the particular user.
  • DISCLOSURE OF INVENTION Technical Problem
  • An aspect of the present invention is to address at least the above-mentioned problems and/or disadvantages and to provide at least the advantages described below. Accordingly, an aspect of the present invention provides a method and apparatus for providing a mobile advertising service in a mobile advertising system, in which preference information of a particular user is shared on a group basis.
  • Another aspect of the present invention provides a method and apparatus for providing a mobile advertising service in a mobile advertising system, which delivers a personalized advertisement requested by a particular group member to other group members using shared user information in a mobile advertising (MobAd) technology aimed to support different types of delivery systems to deliver user-specific advertisements.
  • Solution to Problem
  • In accordance with one aspect of the present invention, there is provided a method for providing a mobile advertising service in a server of a mobile advertising system, in which a group creation request message including a user list and a group user preference is received from an advertising engine, a group is created according to the user list and the group user preference in the group creation request message, a response message to the group creation request message is sent to the advertising engine, an advertisement request message is received from one of advertising engines included in the user list, an advertisement appropriate for the group user preference is selected, and the selected advertisement is delivered to at least one advertising engine included in the user list. The at least one advertising engine is included in the same group.
  • In accordance with another aspect of the present invention, there is provided a method for providing a mobile advertising service in a server of a mobile advertising system, in which the server determines whether update information exists, upon receiving from a specific advertising engine in a group list a group information update request message including group user information in which update information is reflected, the update information of the group user information is checked and stored if the update information exists, a group information update response message is sent to at least one advertising engine included in the group user information, and an advertisement is delivered to the at least one advertising engine included in the group user information. The at least one advertising engine is included in the same group.
  • Advantageous Effects of Invention
  • When group members or other users desire to receive from the Ad server 120 the same personalized advertisement as that requested by a particular user, the present invention may reduce a transmission overhead of user information by using group user information that can share preference setting without transmitting respective updated user information.
  • In addition, the present invention can deliver the personalized advertisement requested by a particular group member to other group members using shared user information in the mobile advertising technology aimed to support different types of delivery systems to deliver user-specific advertisements.

  • FIG. 3 shows an Ad engine-Ad server operation flow for handling a group preference in the conventional mobile advertising system.
  • In step 201, an Ad engine B 130B sends a group creation request message to the Ad server 120 to receive a personalized advertising service. The group creation request message includes information about a preference of the user that uses the Ad engine B 130B. In FIG. 3, the preference of the user using the Ad engine B 130B is written as IPod by way of example. In step 203, the Ad server 120 then processes an authentication procedure for the Ad engine B 130B, creates a group depending on the user preference in the group creation request message, creates a response message to the received group creation request message, and sends it to the Ad engine B 130B. Thereafter, the Ad engine A 130A sends a group join request message for joining the group that the Ad engine B 130B created in step 203, to the Ad server 120 in step 205. In step 207, the Ad server 120 processes an authentication procedure for the Ad engine A 130A, creates a group join response message to the received group join request message, and sends it to the Ad engine A 130A. Thereafter, in step 209, the Ad server 120 delivers an advertisement for group members to the Ad engine B 130B. Also, in step 211, the Ad server 120 delivers the same advertisement as that delivered to the Ad engine B 130B, to the Ad engine A 130A. Steps 209 and 211 may be performed at the same time, step 209 may be performed earlier than step 211, or step 211 may be performed earlier than step 209.
  • It can be understood in the conventional mobile advertising service of FIG. 3 that since the preference that the user provides to receive a personalized advertisement is personal information specific to a particular user, it is strictly limited for other users to use this information. To address this problem, the present invention provides a method for sharing group user preference information, which is described with reference to FIGS. 4 and 5.
  • FIG. 4 shows an Ad engine-Ad server operation flow for handling a group preference in a mobile advertising service system according to an embodiment of the present invention.
  • Shown in FIG. 4 is an example of a group creation procedure for sharing group user preference information to transmit/receive a personalized advertisement in a mobile advertising system.
  • The mobile advertising system includes Ad engines (an Ad engine A 130A and an Ad engine B 130B) and an Ad server 120. The Ad engines 130A and 130B are both located in different mobile terminals and used to access the Ad server 120. The Ad engine A 130A and the Ad engine B 130B are assumed to belong to the same group. The group creation procedure for sharing group user preference information is a procedure in which the Ad engine B 130B informs the Ad server 120 of the user's preference through a group creation request message, and then the Ad server 120 provides a personalized advertising service to the Ad engine A 130A and the Ad engine B 130B based on the received user preference information.
  • To receive the personalized advertising service of FIG. 4, the Ad engine B 130B provides a group creation request message including group user information to the Ad server 120 in step 301. For example, information of the group creation request message can be shown as in Table 2, but this table is not intended to limit the message format.
